Like it, rideable without worrying, top job matching the stem/bars and forks as to getting the sun bleached look to match the frame maybe stick em under a sun bed/lamp halogen lamp thing? probably cost you a few quid in elecy but your a Adroit owner :lol:

Just another topic i wish i had never opened


Why? You don't like it? Finished, only have to do some adjustments, so i found a used Flite, a well used XT M732 breakset, used Syncros seatpost, used Smoke/Dart combo, the only new looking thing is the paint on the fork and the steerer... But i have a plan, will try it later.....


This already looks like a plan to me... very nice build :D

Cheers,
Will

wheels i'm not sure, they are too "new" but i like them...

So everything Suntour XC Pro, except the shifters, they are Suntour X-press, brakes are Dia Compe SS5 levers and 987 canti's
